Combining the Passions...a work in progress.

 I hate to keep harping on my age, but maybe that's what a mid life crisis is. After years of chasing my career, feathering the nest, providing for my family, and basically being a responsible member of society, I've decided to pursue MOST of my interests un-apologetically. To that end, I started painting again after a decade of fucking around. Clearly there is rust that needs to be polished, but at least the effort is made.

Thick Chick Thursday!! .....down under.

OK, I've bored all of you with my aspirations of building the perfect dual sport/world touring motorcycle that not only is dependable and reliable but also has some soul. I'm building this bike because I have a dream of one day making the great disappearance. Sadly, like most dreams, it probably won't come true but it's fun fantasizing about it while drinking beer and turning bolts in my garage. Regardless...Today I found an event, Scram Africa, going down next year, that is SO in line with the bike I'm building, I have to attribute it to fate. God has spoken, get to work!

Slab City Riot/Operation Illusive Unicorn

So now the whole world knows the story. The over reaction of the BLM and the Imperial County Sheriff leading to the cancellation of the Slab City Riot, ONE day before the event!!! And the heroic efforts of Bill, McGoo, Mike D, and the rest of the Biltwell staff to offer a PLAN B to the great unwashed throngs (myself included) who selfishly  look to these guys for annual life changing events. Once again, they delivered! Operation Illusive Unicorn was a complete blast! My head STILL hurts!
The ride through the mountains got a little chili...

Shawn for Canada blows a tire and get too much help..

Black Magic VooDoo shit....

Most of us are perplexed by electricity. Wiring up a bike is probably my least favorite activity related to a build. Invariably, no matter how meticulously I work, I will fuck something up. In an attempt to skip a step (the fucking up step) I will be taking the Beemer to simpletown when it comes to wiring. Headlight, tail light, starter, and that's it!! Thanks to Beer Booter terry for the diagram "lite"!

Yes, it sucks....

Swingin' Society and the Slab City Riot

This weekend is the Slab City Riot. I anticipate a pleasant time with 1500 of my closest good-natured friends. We will be viewing cultural films and participating in quaint party games. Horse play and rude behavior will be strictly frowned upon. Although, between you and me, if I have a little too much Champagne, I can get a little randy...
